A Waii. kiiom iiik Rkiikuh. Tin fol
lowing article from tho Charleston Con
iVr, u paper which was much less anxious
lo enter upon the sea ol war than its ,co
temporary, the Mercvnj. when the long
sown wills of the rebellion Hist begun to
sprout in that hot-bed of treason, shows
tlie depth ol the misery brought upon the
Southern States:
Thi' continuance of thin content Involves
puffi-rimr. Tim evils that follow In the
train ol this calamitous visitation, urnw
more direful with every day. Other hem Is
than those now iiehiug wih anxiety mid
bleeiliiit' from bereavement nro nut wiih
grief, nnd the friend who rynipnlhizeil with
snme nlllcted ono yestejy, to day wnw
bitter teiiM over Iiih own sorrows. The
iron is driven the deeper, mid our burdeiw
beeomu innre mid more heavy. And
thoiiiih more than eighteen umilis have
passed away since the strife was begun,
the end seems more distant than it appeared
to be ii twelve-month' since. Hope after
hope has gonu out in darkness, and expee
tations we had fondly cherished have turned
out to be miserable delusions. So oficu
Imvo we been disappointed, that now our
faith rejects every promise and turns away
from every sign. Our foe is us active and
determineil anil powerful n ever he was.
and the agent I lint wn to compel fnreiirn
tuition to intervene mul put an end to this
wicked mul infamous contest, has not been
potent enough to accomplish that end.
We stand alone. Vast hosts ore mus
tering to repent with n stronger force
nnd with moru obstinate courage 1 lie
attempts that have been made mid strong
hold' hitherto uuattacked will soon have
to bear the most furious onslaughts
the enemy, with his wonderful resouicip
of ingenuity and material, is capable of
making. To fiustrate his welleonceivid
plans, to repel then' terrible attacks, we
have to deiirnil entirelv upon ourselves.
The foe will do his utmost ; military genius
and knowledge, the boundless credit of ihe
Government, the best inecluinicnl skill
mind, money, muscle have nil combined
to ensure success. And while tin so tro
mentions eflnris aro being put forth while
our home is darkened by the shadow of ihe
death angel's wing, iwid'our bosom's wruni:
witli nnuuish while we lire enduring
hard-hips, nnd our soldiers almost nuked
we Ktiiud alone.

The following is nn extract of n private
letter from n soldier in the Fourteenth Illi
nois. It is dated Ilolivar, November 10 :
Jt me relate to you n touching little
incident, that will doubtless strike yon as
a littlo si range. At the battle of the
Hatcliie, when tho conflict wns waging
fiercest, upon ndvnneing, midwuy between
the contending forces, wc found n sweet
little blue-eyed baby, littlo thing, as I saw
it there, hugging the cold earth, its only
bed the tear on its little cheek
That nature bndo it weep, turned
An ico drop sparkling in tho morning beam
unalarmed 'mid the awful confusion of that
fearful bnttle, with the mipsiles of death
lying thick about It, nnd crowding close
upon its young existence yet unhurt, it
seemed, as it lay in its nilrucnlous safety,
to say to me : " My helplessm-ps und inno
cence ajipcn'cd to God, and be preserved
s:UKX-itvniff i '.m.'sc
me in the midst of this wrecking carnage.
tl you will make your plaint to heaven.
God will preserve your poor bleeding; coun

fierce battle of the llnlchic. where the field
was strewn with the dead, mid tho shruks
of the wounded nut the henveint with
agony, u un-ut army would pause in the
thickest or the the conflict to save harm
less a helpless child ? Yet the brave Four
teenth, that never yet hus quailed in battle,
tlid pause, and nn officer of our regiment
nitlered " our little baby" carried to head
quarters and tenderly cared for. The next
day after the bnttle"our babe" was brought
berore the Fourteenth nnd ttimnlinoii-dy

A correspondent of Htirpcr' Drawer
relates the following of one of the chosen,
wliiwininisliv led him into the wilds of
Oregon : "The following T send you Hint
vr.n may know some of the trials to which
voting minisleis nre subjected in the min

The Louisville Journal refers to the in
"tilling demands of the Cnnledorntcs on tho
United Suites Government, nnd speaks of
Gen. McNeil thus :
" Aliliiiinili wo do not nnnrovo the eon-

AntsTornAOY vs. Dkmocuacy. Rev. A.
Putnam, of Uoxbnry, writes home from
Knrope to Ihe Hoximry Journal, that ho
finds by observation the " masses of tho
peoplo " In Kurnpean countries, when lelt

North, while the " powerful Government

is undoubtedly true. The common people
of Knrope sympathise with the institutions)
of the North. In Kughind. till the organs

old-fashion tumble-down structures, several
or which have been converted into quartan

lines in great numbers. There nre severnl
creditable utteinpls ut tasteful grounds,
though the (fleet is generally marred by
some outre or vulgar association. Tho
town lots are large, and the site is really el
igible for n beautiful city. Hut few of thu
inhabitants remain, most nf the able bodied
men having long ugo been drawn into tho
rebel army. Ilaggmil looking widows and
scornful looking maidens, dressed up in nil

Old Dr. Strong, ol Hmtford, had an tin
fortunate habit of sometimes paying funny
thing when he meant to be particularly
t-oleuiii ; us when he was pnsidjng at ii
meeting of ministers, and wishing to call
on one of them to comu forward mid ofler
n prayer, ho said :
' llrolher Colton,
Of Uolton,
Will you step this way
And pray!"
To which Mr. Uidlon immediately o
ftwered, without intending to pirpetrut?
anything of the same sort :
" My dear brother Strong,
"i on do very wrong.
To bj making a rhyme
At nuch a solemn rime."
And then Dr. Strong added ;
' I'm very torry lo ma
That you aro juet like mc."
Tho good men would not, for the wpr.ld,
hwo made such je6ts on such un occasion, ;
but they could plead the same excuso for
their rhymes that the, boy tlid for whistling
in school : " I didn't wiiistlo, sir ; It lvbto
Ue4 itself!"
